Glad to hear it, Velognome! Though I'm loath to be in fashion.

Only because you're not into French bikes, mon ami.

Embrace the black. Consider it a temporary change in appearance, like changing your bar tape. When the black tires wear out, buy some more skin walls if you still dig that look. I've got black and skin walls on various bikes, and some frames look better with one or the other. My main issue with skin walls is they tend to look nasty after riding in the rain and are to ever get clean again. Also, there is limited availability in lightweight skin walls compared to all black tires.

Why not just say "my friend?"

Always trying to make things difficult; goofy threading, berets, and confusing friends with scouring powder...

I think you could theoretically use liquid latex. Available in a huge variety of colors. Brushes on.
